Twisting and wrapping your curls in knots is a pretty universal styling solution. In this example the knots look edgy (along with the bold make up and piercings), while the same updo can suit a romantic girl in a floral dress.
#10: Braided Bantu Buns
Tired of fluffy curls? Tame them with braiding. Beginning your bantu bun with a braid is another way to get your personal touch on the popular hairstyle. Section out a chunky piece of hair and plait it from root to tips. Take that braid and create your textured knot!
